New academic center gives Griz a boost in the classroom
As of September, the Griz have a brand-new place to focus on putting the “student” in student-athlete.
UM officially opened the Grizzly Student-Athlete Academic Center at the start of fall semester. The $2.5 million project was fully funded by private support and gives the more than 300 UM student-athletes a convenient, dedicated place to study and succeed in the classroom.
Connected to the Adams Center, the new building provides access to a spacious study room, a computer lab, and a small conference room for group work. Desktop computer stations and free printing also are available. It’s open seventy hours a week.
For fall semester, the average cumulative GPA for student-athletes was 3.19, the best on record at UM. That makes twenty-one straight semesters with an average cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better for the Grizzlies.
